SAF Regional Cooperation Seminars - Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University

Conference Gujrat, India - 8th May 2007

Although the staff at BAOU was tremendously hospitable, the University only held a Cheque Distribution ceremony with no Seminar component – this is strange considering the Seminar was the focal point of all correspondence with the University since the beginning of the current session’s cheque distribution process. 

As BAOU works closely with the Association for the Blind in Gujrat, around 15 very poor blind students were also given SAF Madanjeet Scholarships for PG Degrees in Physiotherapy; I was glad to learn from them, that upon completion of the programme, all of them were instantly employed.


I got to talk with many of the other students as well, the feedback was extremely positive about the programme and the University.  BAOU along with YCMOU (Maharashtra), are the only two Universities that I have seen so far that actively promote distance learning by broadcasting many of their courses across their respective States through satellite TV.
